Our final video showed us going down the Napali coast. Couple friends and i. I chose to do my video on this because its what we like to do, its fun, and easy. It shows some surfing and jet ski riding. The hardest part of this video was making the sound track. I had a hard time trying to make it match the video. It didn't work out, but we finished and it doesn't look to bad.

Digital Manipulation

First, give an overview of this project by explaining the Surrealism art movement. Then explain each of your surrealist concepts. How did presenting each of your concepts before actually creating them help or hinder your end result? Which of your final images do you think presents your most powerful message and why? (6 sentence minimum)

Back in the printing press days, to achieve color, each ink (cyan, magenta, yellow, and black) had its own plate.  Printers can use a “spot” color which can be added to achieve a specific color swatch (usually a Pantone color). As the printing age has progressed, the digital printer has come a long way, allowing to print in RGB as well. But the standard still stays the same – use CMYK on all printing needs, as the color will appear differently if printed in RGB. 


Raw format is what we refer to as Lossless format because it preserves the file’s original data. You may call JPEG lossy format as some data is always lost when we covert it to JPEG format. 
  • Images in GIF and JPEG formats are lossy, while PNG, BMP and Raw are lossless formats for images.
  • Audio files in OGG, MP4 and MP3 are lossy formats, while files in ALAC, FLAC and WAV are all lossless. 


The two main type of image files are : Raster and Vector. Raster images are created with pixel-based programs or captured with a camera or scanner.  most often in general such as jpg, gif, png, and are widely used on the web. Vector graphics are created with vector software and are common for images that will be applied onto a physical product. Also used in CAD, engineering, and 3D graphics which we do not provide information nor services for.


Technology and productivity impact digital media by art. Anything could be art if you can explain it or make it look nice. With technology nowadays its very easy for people to become artist, not only in drawing but in videography, photography, ect. With photoshop you are able to create art works you've never done before, by overlapping, cutting out, making an image bigger or smaller PS helps a lot.

1) Embed your slides presentation at the top
2) Insert 2 of your finished Surrealist images (not best) below 1st paragraph
3) Insert your BEST image & a photo bar of images it came from below 2nd paragraph
4) Place your critique results below the 3rd paragraph

Photo Challenge

This 15 day long photo challenge was to see if we can go outside of school and get a photo involving a certain angle, theme, and action. Every day was a new concept.

Finally, reflect on whether or not you think your photo skills have improved throughout this process and please explain your answer.

Hiki No Softball Scholarship

In our video we put together we interviewed a Kapaa High School student who is achieving her goals of going to collage for softball. In the video you will learn about how she got into softball, how to achieve your goals,  sibling motivation, and how to keep going and never give up.  This is a nice story because it gives you a feeling that you shouldn't give up and don't listen to what other people, keep your head down and grind it out.

Copy writing is using someone property like written works, and music. Its important to not copy write because you are steeling someones else's work. You could end up getting consequences such as federal government and liable for substantial monetary penalties. If you are going to use someones written work or music its nice to ask permission and give them credit. Therefore you are not copy writing because the owner of the work gave you permission.

It is essential to ask permission to film or take footage of certain areas. Some places may not want you to film on there property. Remember to always ask permission. If they don't want you to film on there property you would have to find a new place and ask permission.

Practice Story

For our story we chose myself as the interviewee and agreed on a topic that would make a nice story and that would could also film in school. Kayla was our director/ camera / and audio. Shanayah was our editor / reporter / and voice over. We all worked together and the story didn't come out bad. The hardest part was being interviewed for me. Its really weird and nerve racking.

When we where shooting for our video the number 1 priority was to keep the camera out of any bad weather or far away from water or anything that can damage the camera.

Safety tips:
Do not use the camera in environments that could cause you harm
If you're going to shoot a photo of the sun, do not stare at the sun through the camera's viewfinder
Use care whenever handling the camera batteries, especially if you see any leakage on the rechargeable batteries

Interveiw Composition

    good example


An interveiw shot is a lot diffrent thenyou think. If your shooting your videos with a flat angle, have the camera too close to the reporter your videos wil not come out good. If you want a perfect interveiw shot do the following. Have a reporter stand directly to the right or left of the camera. You must be able to see the interviewee eyes and hear him clearly. compose your shot using the rule of thirds. Have propper head and chin space for interviewee and look space. Tell your interviewee to move back and dont get a video with the background clear. We want to see depth in the shots.

Under The Blood Red Sun

Mr. and Mrs. Savage where a couple that worked on movies. Mr. Tim Savage was the director while Mrs. Mardi Savage was an associate producer. Tim directed the movie Under The Blood Red Sun. The movie was very interesting and I really enjoyed it. The movie made you think about how it was for Japenese people at the time. They where misunderstood, and accused of being a threat cause of the bombing at Pearl Harbor.

Ethan Kaiwi asked " did you feel like the movie was worth your time and effort "? Tim savage responded saying " Yes, it was worth the time and effort because hehad so much fun shooting the movie, hanging out with such young actors, and i enjoy directing movies. Its what i do thats my job. Shooting the movie with so many young actors was fun and we where like a big family".
